back on march 2008 it was my birthday and i had heavy drinking that day.ever since that day i been having stomach issues and all.so i decided to go to a gstro dr in which he perform EGD well the tube goes into the month.my doctor said i had a small hital hernia.so he put me on medications,he thinks its GERD but most medications didnt work.so he sent me for a cats scan and that was normal and alsol the hida scan was normal and gallbladder was normal also.
 
so i went o a secon gastro doctor for second opinion in which they perfon the barium swallowing test which was normal.
and then they did a gastri empty test in which my stomach shows midly delay and said i have Gastroparesis  but i try eatting small meals and all and still it dont work.and now hes doing  EGD like my first doctor did.

Good Evening,

This is Kitt. Diet remains one of the cornerstones of gastroparesis treatment, and most doctors recommend specific dietary changes, including:

Smaller, more frequent meals. Because a supersized meal takes longer to digest than a light snack, you're likely to do better eating six to eight small meals a day instead of two or three large ones. Smaller, more frequent meals also help avoid the feeling of fullness that plagues many people with gastroparesis.

For people whose appetite wanes later in the day, dietitians suggest eating solid, nutrient-dense foods in the morning, then switching to lighter meals or liquids in the afternoon and evening.

Ppeople with gastroparesis are usually advised to substitute low-fiber foods - well-cooked fruits and vegetables, fish, chicken, yogurt, and refined breads and grains — for fiber-rich fare.
 
As a general rule, doctors recommend avoiding fatty foods, but they may allow small servings of milkshakes or other rich drinks, especially between meals, for people who are able to tolerate them. Mayo clinic
 
As far as other treatments I feel you physician should work with you one on one to choose your plan of care as each person is different.
 
WE are here to support you and to help share our own experiences with you.
 
We truly care about you so do keep posting.
 
Gentle Hugs
Kitt

inoperable, I have gastroparises to, and i eat smal amts of food thorugh the day. I also have the hiatal hernia ttoo, Gastro not to worried about,says no big deal and wont help my gastrparsis issues at all. i get asking him about it would he fix the hernia , he sadi NO its not nesscery shakehead .  I felt like then whats gonna stop all this, so he put me on a long term dose of erthomyicin, reglan for nasuea and tho help speed up the stomach, my empting is real bad. i had edg and colonscopy, the edg, show sw. Confirmed a large hiatal hernia,Gerds and swelling in the eshopugus and becouse i was vomiting so much. And i got the dont eat too much at one time or you will vomit, so i eat smally meals during , i do get sick if i eat toom uch at one meal, i have to eat small meals, and some stuff makes me reall sick, like raw veggies, and fruit, cooked ok.

Oatmeal i can handle ok. With gastropariesis, your not suppose to have alot of fiber, havent figured that out why, i guess fibrous stuff causes gas. But the how do you stay regular. I have speial tea that helps me. I tryed applesuace for a while, then it made me sick, i can tolerate pears if i cut them up reaal smalll with sugar free wheat puffs, and alitte bit of pnut butter. Top ramen noodles are ok if i drain them.  I cant eat spicy, or italian foods the toamtoes.

If you go into the fibro forum and type in gastroparies you will find about 3 threads on it, with some very good info on it.

How is the procedure you had done doing? smurf

Ps,, i get that growling feeling in my stomach to even when im not hungry, i dont like that feeling very much.   also i wrote in other post on rocedure, i forgot you are not the one with procedure done, sorry smilewinkgrin

And we live in a small town, and people come from other counties to watch this, during the day they has hayrides for the kids, pony rides, big blown up bouncy things the kids play in. a bouncy slide etc.
I remember the night before we had spicy chicken and it made me sick,  then 4th of july day  we had a steak, and thats all I ate all day.  I dint know if was the excitment tha triggerred for me or not, but i bet the birthday party may have trigered it andy check out the fibro forums we have to big threads one.

I completely understand where you are coming from with nothing seems to help. Mine started about 14 months ago. It started where my stomach would just bloat so i looked like i was 6 or 7 months pregnant. Then i started not being able to eat past like 9 at night or i would just throw it up in the morning when i woke up. Then it started to get worse. The ER in my town had put me on some magnesium citrate and told me I was constipated....was not! I drank it and it made that way for 3 weeks. then finally I started throwing up every time i ate something. so my doctor told me to eat low fat food, 6 small meals a day, no raw fruits or veggies. Also low fat milk...yuck i know. That still didn't help so I had an eating exam done and my stomach doesn't contract at all to let my food ass through. It takes my stomach about 6 hours to empty the smallest thing. So I have lost about 15 lbs in one month from this. I drink as much liquid as possible to keep myself hydrated. It doesn't fill me up but i would rather do that then throw up. Try Jamba Juice if you have one close to you or getting smoothie receipts from food network.com I eat a lot of cup noodles not so much the noodles but the broth is good. I try to save as much energy as I can to be able to function...that is the best adv that i can give you. This is really hard and it is a disease and it is hargd o find information about it cause it is kinda a gray area in the gastrology field. Try getting information at the website university of Virgina. they will have a whole menu of food you can eat to keep it under control and also what causes this in most people. best of luck

Thank you for the information.  Since being dx i have gotten a little bit better. protonix seems to help some, and reglan and phenergan. i still get a lot of heartburn and end up taking tums and zantac for breakthrough hearburn.
the reglan seems to have helped the slow gastric empting, so that is good.
I hope you get some relief from yours...

I have gastoparesis. I am trying to find out if anyone else has the gastricpacemaker. I had one put in in Aug.2006 It had been a miracle

for me. In June my leads came off and since then it has been downhill all over again. I just got out of the hospital 4 days ago after a

a week stay. Before that it was a 3 day stay. My husbands work changed insurance 2 years ago and the new company has paid for all

of my follow up visits with the dr. but do not want to pay for the leads to be put back on. I can't afford to pay for it. My doctors are

wanting to put in a J tube or remove half of my stomach. I just want my pacemaker fixed. I am at home out of work once again with a

pick line in having to hook up to feed at night not fun. Is there anyone who has had to deal with insurance for a reason like this any

help please.

i was also just diagnosed w/gastric paresis.  i find enzymes w/each meal help, but HCL is too harsh on my stomache due to leaky gut probably caused by yrs of GERDS. My dr. suggested i try iberogast. internet shows enzymatic therapy makes so i hope i can get it.  I also find aloe juice helps to help soothe/heal lining.  My GI doctor told me he will not give Reglan to his patients due to side effects so i"m looking to alternatives.  Has anyone found out where to get iberogast?

Good Morning angelmia,

I started you a thread of your own as this one is an old thread.  I want you to have the opportunity to meet all of our great members. Look for a thread with your name in it.

thanks

hello! I was just diagnosed with gastroparesis a few weeks ago and my doctor perscribed zofran for the nausea but it seems like every time i use the zofran, after it wears off I feel even worse! I also experience severe stomach pain since I've been on the medication - has anyone else had this experience while taking Zofran?

Thanks!

Welcome Shb,
you tacked on to an old thread. How about starting a new thread and introducing yourself.

I've never taken Zofran.

Problems too numerous to name. :)
